Le Touquet

33,69 km cycling route from Le Touquet to Boulogne-sur-Mer

The Vélomaritime takes you round the Bay of the Canche via Étaples, a port with the largest British military cemetery in France. Then you ride beside Mont Saint-Frieux Nature Reserve. For a lunchtime rest, choose either to head back to the coast, following the link to the resort of Hardelot, nestled between sea and forest, or to stop at the Château d'Hardelot, with its cycling facilities, a place to grab a bite, plus the castle to visit. Finally comes Boulogne-sur-Mer, France's leading fishing port, designated a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire for its cultural riches. Beside the main town beach, Nausicaá, boasting Europe's largest aquarium, is a sealife centre that transports you deep into the world's oceans!

The route

To head for Etaples, cross the Pont Rose bridge using the cycle path from Le Touquet.
Until Neufchâtel-Hardelot, we follow the D940 on cycle paths, then we turn west on a dedicated track towards Hardelot, Condette and the Château d'Hardelot. At the northern exit of Condette, work has made it easier to cross the Ecault forest. Exiting Ecault hamlet, you need to cycle along the RD119 road before joining the existing segregated cycle paths leading into the port of Boulogne. After that, make use of the various cycling facilities set up in town.
